Building a house is a seriously complex project that involves multiple steps, multiple businesses and people at each organisations between the builders, contractors, the banks, the government and council divisions and eventually utility providers.

With that complexity, it can be hard to get our heads around the upcoming timeline, so this dedicated page will not only keep us on track, but serve as a record for history of how things played out with our home build.
